Hey guys,

I just thought to open a journal my trading as I started trading futures markets. Little bit about my trading experiance... I have been trading/Learing Forex markets for more than two years now. I always wanted to learn to read the market and I was using price action basically. After discovering Volume Spread Analysis I moved to futures market as it gives good volume data. I am with Infinityfutures becos I just liked the Infinity AT platform (DOM).

So my futures plans...
1) Create proper trading plan based on VSA.

2) ofcourse ..learn to follow it.

I am also thinking whether to follow several contracts or just try to concentrate on only one single contrat for the time been. will see.

Indicators - Just Volume and volume by price and support and resistance levels... tried pivots previously but feels like it takes my concentrations away from VSA.

Any comment will be greatly appreciated. I will be posting my chart in the next posts.

Ibba

Trade done yesterday,

I saw this massive volume pin bar. If it isnt selling how can it close in the middle? After that low volume up bar (not a nodemand though) closes in to the area of the previuos bar. Next bar was a doji type narrow spread bar with good volume. Not a good trade though. Managed to get couple of ticks.

FYI, you can always post charts, even on your 1st post. What you can't do is link to other sites, including third party image services. I strongly discourage using third party image services, because a large number of them die off, leaving posts and threads on forums with empty posts (no images). Better to use the forum itself to attach images, or you can use futures.io (formerly BMT)'s own image service, bmcharts.com - share your trades, which is guaranteed to be around as long as the forum
